I appreciate the comments James made, I too have been down that road.
I have enough of the rare parts to build four cars, including a Gulf car, having hunted down and obtained the spare engine to 1075.
We all start out full of enthusiasm. Yes, it is possible and we all have skills and the time, if we commit it, but one factor has been omitted here...
You cannot factor life in and what will happen.
For those who would like a slightly easier option, I offer you this :
the website also has some fun content.
Building and Racing a Legend – Historic car racing
We did not say that you all should give up, we just pointet that to build a gt40 monocoque , you need almost every drawings, and you also have to make lots of tools, and not to mention all CNC work, so you need to be a skilled solidwork user. and you must make molds and cores for uprigths, steering and know how to make them in aluminum with the hardning prosess. You also need lots of spotwelder machines. You can make a car without all these equipment but then you must pay the cost.We should all give up , that is the best way for people to lose interest . Some of us are young enough and do have skill . I have restored a few cars , that required thousands of hours and made a few other things . It is what some of us enjoy doing , where are the next generation of metal men or tin bashers going to come from. I have two English wheels , planishing hammer , 52 inch sheer brake and sliproller .
The trick is not minding that it hurts. / What one man can do another can do .
